Subject description: Games needed
 

I'm setting up a laptop for an older lady at our church with Retro Precise - it is an old IBM X21 - and she has asked if it would be possible to get her favorite Windows games - Solitaire (Spider and regular) and Hearts - checked the package manager repositories and found neither. Not into games myself so am asking here to see if they can be had...

Thanks,

Alice

A good choice is Tkgames package with tcl/tk technologies.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkgames/files/latest/download?source=dlp

First you need to download and install tcl and tk.

You can see topic:

Next decoprerss the tkgames package and open tkgames-1.2 folder. For run Spider klik tkspider-1.1, for run Hearts klik tkhearts-0.91, for run Solitaire open tksol folder and klik tksol or tksol_green.

I have Spider as a tkl app. Let me see if I can figure out where I found it.

Whoops, nevermind... witekjeden has a link to a whole collection of them...

I run Precise Puppy and have both Hearts, Klondike ("regular") and Spider Solitaire on my computer. You can get them easily through the Ubuntu repositories. For Spider, download AisleRiot Solitaire which is a collection of solitaire games and Spider Solitaire is one of the choices as well as Klondike (it has about 40 other varieties as well).

While the AisleRiot Solitaire package is listed in the Ubuntu Main repository attempts to download it and its dependencies produces an "Package Not Available" error on the download links provided in the package manager - any ideas on where they might be found and downloaded? A PET pkg if such is out there would be ideal.
